An Integrated Hydrogen Vision for California

This paper, which explores the economic and environmental challenges confronting California and the role of hydrogen as a potential solution, was written for two primary purposes. First, the authors suggest that the time is right for an expanded science and technology initiative in California for clean energy development. Second, they discuss specific concepts and strategies that the state might employ as it continues to explore the role of hydrogen in transportation and stationary settings. They describe opportunities and obstacles for hydrogen, principles, and strategies for clean energy policy, California as a unique setting for clean energy technology development, and key elements of a hydrogen strategy for the state. They conclude that hydrogen should make up one part of a balanced energy R& D and development portfolio for the state.
